    I'm not sure how readable this is going to be in a message post but I put together a grid of the likelihood that the Pats games will be available in the Los Angeles broadcast market without NFL Ticket by looking at which network has each week's double header (CBS or Fox), the other games on at the same time and the regional broadcast impact of the Chargers. Of course this is just my best judgement at the moment. The networks will make decisions as storylines develop (e.g. undefeated streaks) and playoff positioning starts to take shape and the league itself will re-schedule games to fill in holes where there is a lack of intriguing match-ups. The actual Sunday day games to be broadcast is generally not finalized until Wednesday of each week. Anyway, this is my best guess so take it for what it's worth which ain't much

    If anyone has any input as to factors that I have not considered or knows of TV network policies that will help clarify this, I welcome your input.

    Thanks for posting this. I'm in the exact same boat - meaning in LA and no Sunday Ticket. And having a kid in two weeks is about to complicate my 'watch it at a bar' routine.

    Just don't call the team the Los Angeles Patriots - Try using a hyphen
